Halloween Tunes

The Halloween season always puts me in mind of my skirt/fishnets/combat boots/eyebrow ring/black makeup period/phase/epoch. It was such a liberating and delightful time. Below, please find links to some classic tunes sure to add some genuine gloom to your Halloween party playlist.

Southern Cross in the #BlackLivesMatter Film Competition

This lovely film (after the fold) that I had the pleasure of scoring, back when I was an MFA candidate at Columbia College Chicago, is in the running to be a part of the #BlackLivesMatter Film Festival, sponsored by Shadow and Act, the Black and African Diaspora film blog. Directed by Kameishia Wooten, and featuring some singing from Mae Crosby and myself. Check it...

Bowes Academy – This Weekend!

Bowes Academy has been tearing it up in the film festival circuit, lately.

New Projects!

Two projects that I’m attached to are currently in the last stages of their crowdfunding campaigns. Please take a minute to check out these great film and TV projects, and consider supporting them. Market Value is a dramatic feature dealing with issues surrounding LGBT adoption rights and illegal adoption. They’ve already finished filming, and they are crowdsourcing funding for post-production (which includes me!). Here is the trailer: Market Value Film | Teaser Trailer from Wendell Etherly on Vimeo. Easy Abby is the #1 web series in America, with over 30 million views! They are getting ready to shoot Season 2, and they have a perk-filled IndieGoGo campaign to entice you. Here’s an episode (potentially NSFW): Writing music for wildly different projects, like these, is always such a joy (and it keeps my brain on its toes). I’m looking so forward to getting started. Thanks for your...

Welcome!

I’m very excited to reveal the newly renovated Blue Police Box Music website! It’s now incredibly easy for you to: Browse music, by genre, on the Music page, check out some clips (including my full-length composer reel) on the Visuals page, read as much as you care to about me, everywhere else, and get in touch with me directly. Huge thank you’s go out to RayRay at RayRayArt.com for the redesign. Getting this all set up was a wonderful process, and I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a web designer. Please feel free to look around, and if anything doesn’t work properly, please let me know so we can tweak it. As always, thanks for...

Introducing Captain Extraordinary!

I am thrilled to announce that I’ve been signed on as the composer for a new kids’ animated series, which is moving into development! Captain Extraordinary is being written by the inimitable Richard Dinnick – with whom I had the great pleasure of working on a Doctor Who audio adventure for Big Finish (You can check that out here!) – and is produced by Rushfirth Creative in the UK. Here is the original press release! The voice talent on board include Dan Starkey (Strax the Sontaran, Doctor Who), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom, Harry Potter Series), and V.O. artist extraordinary Beth Chalmers. The original animatic trailer is in the works right now, and the score is already taking shape! We cannot wait to share this with you! It’s shaping up to be quite delightful. If you’d like to keep updated on the series, you can follow cast and crew on Twitter! Rushfirth Creative. Dan Starkey. Matt Lewis. Beth Chalmers. Richard Dinnick. & Me!
